Dr. Pan is currently a postdoctoral research fellow for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (ARC TMOS) at the University of Western Australia (UWA). His research interests lie in infrared-sensitive materials & devices and their integration with meta-optics for applications in next-generation infrared sensors. Dr. Pan was awarded his PhD in Microelectronics and Solid-state Electronics from Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2017. His PhD research was on molecular beam epitaxial (MBE) growth and characterization of III-V optoelectronic materials & devices such as lasers and infrared detectors. Since 26/02/2018, Dr. Pan worked as a full-time research associate/fellow in the Microelectronics Research Group (MRG), the School of Engineering at UWA to continue his research on optoelectronics, particularly II-VI infrared semiconductors and detectors. Dr. Pan has registered on the supervisor panel at UWA and co-supervised two PhD students. Dr. Pan has published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and 1 book chapter. Most of the papers have been published in well-respected journals of this field, such as Nano research, ASC photonics, Sci. Rep., Appl. Phys. Lett., J. Appl. Phys., etc.
